    Our business is based on our desire to bank responsibly, to be a reliable partner and to work for the benefit of society.

    One of our main goals and an indicator of corporate success is the integration of the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) into the bank’s business model.

    More and more companies realize the importance of complying with the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) in their business activities. This is the more comprehensive term for sustainable and responsible banking.

    What is ESG

    ESG stands for Environmental, Social, and Governance. These are three business aspects that are considered key factors in measuring a company’s sustainability. Each of these aspects include:

    • Environmental protection

      Climate change by reducing the carbon footprint, water and waste management, increasing energy efficiency, etc.

    • Social activity

      Good company integration and the support it provides to all stakeholders and local communities. It includes protection of human rights, modern labour standards and ensuring a healthy and safe workplace, etc.

    • Corporate management

      Transparent company management, balancing the interests of all stakeholders, business model for long-term value creation and sustainability, anti-corruption and anti-money laundering.

    Responsible banking principles

    Sustainability is not just a short-term trend; it is the result of all aspects and provides to the companies a long-term business opportunity. But it is also a responsibility.

    One of our main goals and an indicator of corporate success is the integration of the Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) into the bank’s business model. Our business strategy, as well as our products, services and processes are in compliance with ESG.

    To achieve this, we do not limit ourselves to generating economic value, but take into account the social and environmental impact of our business activities. We believe that this is the way to achieve efficiency and sustainability in our results.

    The key principles we have integrated into our strategic framework for sustainable development are creating value, building trust, and transformation.

    UN Global Compact

    As part of Raiffeisen Bank International Group (RBI), a pioneer in Central and Eastern Europe on ESG, we comply with the UN Global Compact (UNGC) for responsible banking.

    The UN Global Compact for responsible banking is a single framework for sustainable development of the banking industry, the result of an innovative partnership between the banking industry and the financial initiative of the United Nations Environment Programme. This is the world’s largest initiative to help companies align their practices for a sustainable and inclusive future.

    Not only are we committed to consistently adhering to the ten UN principles of responsible business – with its main areas being human rights, labour standards, environmental protection and anti-corruption – but we also expect a similar attitude of global responsibility from all employees and managers, as well as from partners and suppliers.

    Our contribution

    The bank continues following its long-lasting traditions in social responsibility and charity as a commitment to society, the tradition being built on the principles of responsible banking for a better future for us and the future generations, with care for nature and society.

    Sustainable business and investments in sustainable development are the future direction for development of economies and societies in a global aspect. This is a huge opportunity for Bulgarian companies, which we strive to support with sustainable financial products and services, information and advice.
